Surendra Nath Singh had alleged that his daughter had become a victim of “love jihad” and blamed Congress MLA Arif Masood for encouraging it. Singh had also claimed that his daughter was mentally challenged, but she had denied this.
"By setting a romantic love story against the backdrop of a huge tragedy that occurred at Kedarnath, a centre of faith for crores of Hindus, the filmmakers have shown great disrespect to the followers of the religion" Ajendra Ajay from BJP's media relations team said.
"Your sister ties the rakhi on your wrist. You, in return, gift her clothes, jewelry and sweets. But along with that, gift her also a sword from now on so that even when a love jihadi glances at her, she would be brave enough to behead him and offer it at the feet of Mother India," she said.
Earlier this week, the father of the woman, who is alleged to be a victim of love jihad, claimed before the apex court that his efforts prevented his daughter from being transported to "extremist-controlled territories" of Syria to be used as a "sex slave or a human bomb".
J Nandkumar made these comments during the launch of a book titled ‘Ek Mukhauta Aisa Bhi’ (A Mask Like This)- a collection of stories on love jihad by a firm that is part of a newly formed group of publishers associated with the RSS- at the ongoing World Book Fair in the national capital.
